Nine would probably work, with the right ammo.
I’ve never seen a big cat in the wild. However, on one backpack trip, my friend and I watched a large wolf walk past our camp, about 40yds up the hill from us.
On that trip, I carried a G23 with hot DoubleTap solids, for the possible black bear encounter.
Seeing that beautiful, magnificent animal is a memory I’ll always treasure. But I was sure glad that G23 was on my hip, with my hand on it.
Personally, I think 40 S&W is a fantastic outdoorsman cartridge, and it’s still possible to find police surplus deals…
The past is gone...the future may never happen.
Be Here Now.

The OP questions were answered repeatedly in the first couple pages of the thread. Since then discussion has been about other topics, such as how difficult it is to do, or what people feel is a better choice than a 9mm.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
